If you were very unwell and not able to communicate your preferences to others, who would speak for you? What would you want them to say? Advance care planning helps to ensure that your loved ones and your doctors know what your health care and personal preferences are. That can give everyone peace of mind.
The City of Port Phillip established its Older Persons Consultative Committee (OPCC) in 2000. Appointed by the Council to be its main consultative body, the group reports on issues that affect the health and wellbeing of older residents in the City of Port Phillip.
At this year's OPCC forum, Advance Care Planning Australia Volunteer Community Ambassadors will provide easy to understand information about what advance care planning is, how it may benefit you and how to do it.
